MG Midget and Sprite Technical - 1500 clutch hose/pipe

I was on the verge of finally getting the midget on the road for the first time in my ownership when the clutch pedal refused to budge (see earlier post).
After lots of advice on here I sent it away for the engine out clutch change.
I am away from home and am exchanging emails regularly with the guy who changed the clutch.
He says the original plastic hose has burst and needs to be replaced. He recommends a copper and/or braided one.
Lots of conflicting opinions about that on the Internet.
The problem is, he is unable to find anything with the correct fittings at the slave end.
Can anyone offer any advice or guidance please?
Hose size, fitting sizes, who may supply a pipe replacement.
Was so looking forward to taking it out in the sun!
